St Jude’s Anglican Church, Oakville. In 1887 the parish hall was completed to consist of what is now the main hall with a vaulted ceiling, featuring a beautiful Queen Victoria Jubilee window, the gift of a long-time warden, Christopher Armstrong.

  1. That is a beautiful window! Nothing is quite as beautiful as stained glass when the light shines through it.

  2. Ooh, I love cathedral stained glass windows! Lovely!

  3. Gorgeous colours! Well captured too – stained glass isn’t always easy to photograph. I must say, the artist who made the window actually made Queen Victoria look quite attractive! Mostly in artistic impressions she just looks plain old, dumpy and frumpy:-)

  4. My goodness, what amazing detail! That is really impressive, I wish I knew how to make stained glass. Lucky you to have found this – thanks so much for sharing it with us!

  5. That stained glass window is a work of art! It feels like an Anglican church as the design seems so English. An amazing and artistic window, I can imagine the worshipers looking at it during a service – it is so eye catching!

  6. […] Another stained glass window from St Jude’s Anglican Church in Oakville. This one is a bit more modern than the one shown here. […]
